& Getting Started"> Installing & Getting Started

Once youve downloaded DiskPie Pro from the PC Magazine Utility Library to a folder on your Microsoft Windows 98, Me, 2000, or XP machine, simply unzip, double-click on setup.exe, and follow the simple on-screen instructions.

Overview of the Interface

When DiskPie Pro starts up, itll display an Explorer-style view of your file system. You can then select a folder or a local or networked drive, and DiskPie Pro will begin to analyze it. Click on any of the "pie" tabs to see a visual breakdown of your selected location:

  • Folder pie will show the largest files and folders in the current folder. It will scan all subfolders and add the sizes of all files inside them, attributing the total size to the folder size.
  • Filetype pie will show a breakdown of the used space by filetype, so that you can see which filetypes are hogging your hard disk.
  • Largest files pie will show the largest files in the selected folder.
  • You can launch DiskPie Pro by right-clicking on a folder in Windows and selecting DiskPie. You can also launch the utility by the standard means of double-clicking on the shortcut on your Desktop or selecting it in your Start Menu.
